Invisalign FAQs at Riverwalk Dental
Invisalign is a treatment that does what metal braces do. The system is made up of several aligners that can treat an underbite, an overbite, crowded teeth, and gaps in the teeth. Over the course of your treatment and as it progresses, you would need put in a new aligner about every 4 to 6 weeks. By the end of the treatment, you should have straight teeth and a perfect smile. If you are considering Invisalign treatment, there are a few things that you should know.
Invisalign Is Great For Adults
Most adults who are not happy with the appearance of their smile avoid treatment because they don't want to wear metal braces for a year or more. Metal braces are traditionally for teenagers. Since the Invisalign aligners are transparent, nobody would know you are wearing them. Also, unlike metal braces, there are no food restrictions when you have Invisalign and brushing and flossing is easier. This is because you remove the aligners before you eat and brush your teeth. With Invisalign, you wouldn't need to make any major lifestyle changes.
What Type of Dentist Provides This Treatment?
You can see either a dentist or an orthodontist if you are thinking about Invisalign. You should understand that not all dental professionals offer this treatment. The dentist or orthodontist would need special training in order to offer Invisalign to their patients.
Who Is a Good Candidate For Invisalign?
Anyone with a bite issue is typically a good candidate for Invisalign. If your gums are not healthy, your dentist or orthodontist might recommend that you see a periodontist first so that your gum issues can be treated. When everything checks out, you should be able to proceed with the treatment.
How To Find An Invisalign Provider In Your Area?
There are a few ways that you can find a professional who offers Invisalign. First, you can check with your dentist to see if they offer it. If not, they might be able to refer you to someone who can. Also, a simple Google search of “Invisalign near me” can give you a list of Invisalign providers in your area.
